Mrs. Ruth Esther Woodcock, went to Heaven peacefully at her home, Friday evening, November 15, 2019, surrounded by her family.
Ruth was born in Springfield, MA on October 1, 1935. Her life embodied a true Christian spirit and service to others as she strived always to share the message best presented by lyrics of her favorite song, "Saved, Saved"; "I love to tell how He lifted me and what his Grace can do". She will be remembered by those who loved her and by the community she served in her capacity as a CNA in Camden and Glynn County as the wife of "Bo" Woodcock, a farmer from Patterson. They were members of Pleasant Hill Baptist church.
She was the daughter of Warren and Ellen Mailan Johansen. She was also preceded in death by her loving husband, Eldon (Bo) Woodcock; and son, Thomas (Tommy) Woodcock.
She is survived by her 4 daughters; Donna Woodcock (Randy) Sellers of Claxton, Deborah Woodcock (James) Sigman of Waverly, Evonne Woodcock (Mike) Swanson of Rockingham, NC, and Sandra Woodcock Overstreet of Waverly; and 11 grandchildren.
A private memorial service will be held graveside from New Home Cemetery, at a later date.
Memorialization is by Cremation.
